@hherhold Thanks for extra mouse tip, so you rotate 3D view by switching to the “None” mode, move pen, and then switch back to previous mode?
@lassoan Thanks, the arrow keys would help in 3D and Numeric keypad might be an idea.
Still I’d like to use mouse for rotate – without mode switching. So if you I don’t mind back to 3D view question in the segment editor: here Ctrl-Left-button in 3D is bound to “Paint” (if in Paint mode) as far as I can tell, but you say it’s bound to an other action?
Also, the Alt-modifier seems to be entirely unused in all of 3D Slicer? If Alt-Left-button did “Rotate”, then that’ll help too although I’d vote for Ctrl!
My second mode of working has an issue that boils down to the very same problem. I’d like to use my Wacom tablet with standard modifier keys to effortlessly switch between Paint, Erase, Pan, Scroll, Zoom and Rotate.
The following already works out-of-the-box: Paint (pen in Paint mode), Scroll (touch ring), Zoom (pen side button). An easy tablet setting (middle-click assigned to Wacom “Pan” button) makes Pan work! And, so does Switching between Paint and Erase (Spacebar assigned to Wacom button).
All done for one thing: there’s no 3D Slicer equivalent to map to for Rotate! Here again, I’d love it to be just Ctrl-left button.
So in other words, Ctrl-left button bound to Rotate would solve both mouse and tablet issues – neither should involve mode switching for rotating I think.
As for your question about devices: I have
- 3-button mouse,
- Wacom tablet (with 7 buttons and dial), and
- 3D Spacenavigator (3dconnexion).
I haven’t configured the Spacenavigator although I gather it’s possible though your PLUS software?
